It is situated in a beautiful, hilly, rural landscape, surrounded by woods and fields, good for hiking and cycling ( there are many well marked trails).
Weinfelden has a nice little historic center, so you can discover beautiful corners and places in short walks from our house.

The lake of Constance, with its many tourist attractions on all the borders ( swiss, german and austrian), old romantic towns, nice places to swim and possibilities of boat-trips or watersports is about 20 - 30 minutes from our home( by car or train).
The mountains are reachable in about 1 hour and offer beautiful possibilities for hiking, climbing, refreshing baths in mountain-lakes, visiting alpine pastures with cheese-dairies ore breathtaking views from peaks ( many also reachable by cable-car).
We planed our house 15 years ago together with an architect. It is built with natural, ecological materials for everybodys health. A nice, well decorated home to feel well means al lot to us and we treat everything with care as we will certainly do in your house.
As we adore plants and we have a lot of them in the house and in the garden, we are looking for exchange-partners who like them as well and who would be willing to take care of them during their stay ( watering, partly automatical system).
Nearby there are different golf courses.
